    Though, I will be looking for an isolator offered here and here to add a yellow top battery.
    This in turn, will allow me to run all my components like the CarPC, screen and even the amps on the new battery and off the starter stock battery, but I may end up upgrading that as well for a red top.
    What do you guys think, I am going out of hand with that setup and did I choose the right components for what I am trying to get done here.
    looks like someone got bit by the car audio bug... just so you realise, the amp you picked out will probably not fit under the seat. if you are set on having the amp under the seat, look at alpines pdx series amps-- their not cheap, but their small.

    'getting out of hand' is a relative term, my system is only slightly diferent than the one in your wishlist, and i am only keeping it around to hold me over till i get better everything (amps, speakers, subs).

    I was originally also going to go with a battery isolator, but it is just not worth the cost unless you plan on sitting for very long(if you don't ever sit for more than 2 hours, you should be fine) periods of time with the engine off, and accessories on-- like for shows, or meets.

    lol, the amp I picked out is not going under the seat.
    The only reason I'm putting that cheap one from earlier is since I already have the wiring going to that location.

    As for the ones that I picked out, those are both going in the trunk.
    As for the isolator, I do plan on going to shows, we have them here all the time.

    Yeah, I saw that one too. It's a bit higher now but it is still a good deal!

    The only thing is it is quite large. Way larger than i thought it would be but it sounds pretty good. I have it bridged to power my speakers on one channel and my subs on the other. I had two amps but i didn't want install the second and i also didn't have room to put it where i want
